ALAN CUMMING: LEGAL IMMIGRANT
Great Barrington, 7 p.m.
Alan Cumming has been described by Time Magazineas one of the most fun people in show business, by the New York Times as a ‘bawdy, countercultural sprite’ and by the Guardian as ‘European, weird, and sexually ambiguous’.  Alan Cumming is many things to many people – renaissance man, style icon, social activist, bon viveur - but to himself he is a story-teller and provocateur for hire.  For more information and tickets click here or call the Box Office at 413.528.0100 (Wed-Sat, Noon-4pm).  Mahaiwe

Oldcastle Theatre Company is presenting a series of readings of new plays by well-known playwrights. The series continues with Nathan Stith directing “Stripped,” a play by his Trinity University colleague Rachel Joseph, at the Bennington Free Library.

The cast includes Oldcastle regulars Meredith Meurs, Richard Howe and Christine Decker and Gabriel Vaughan.

PEKING ACROBATS
Great Barrington, 7:30 p.m.
For the last thirty two years, The Peking Acrobats have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess at such arts as trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control. The Peking Acrobats are often accompanied by live musicians who skillfully play traditional Chinese instruments; the time-honored Chinese music coalesces with high-tech special effects and awe-inspiring acrobatic feats, creating an exuberant entertainment event with the festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival.
